Third Day of Christmas

In the song, “Twelve Days of Christmas”, on this day, the true love sends three French hens.

Some traditions say that this day symbolizes faith, hope and charity, or the Holy Trinity, or the three gifts of the Magi. It is also the Feast of St Stephen, the first Christian martyr. Today, as we languish in Perth’s third day of our Christmas heatwave, we reflect on the passing of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a spiritual giant of South Africa. Today thus calls for both a haiku and an American Sentence!

Third day of Christmas
hens peck their way to glory
laying eggs of gold.

In blissful mirth and common sense, the Arch dances through the golden gates.

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.
